We are currently working in partnership with Redbridge College on a new course called Working Well into Work (please see the attached flyer) which is supporting young people on the pathway to employment. As part of the course we now have six young people who are looking for a work placement (maybe for two weeks) to put into action the new skills they have learnt as students on the WWiW course. The students will be accompanied by a job coach and we are willing to provide training and support for your staff before and whilst the students will be with you. We are therefore writing to ask for your support to give these students an opportunity to make the first steps towards paid employment which is their aspiration and goal.
We are currently meeting with students to discuss their individual career choices and hope you may be able to offer a placement for one to three students within your organisation to give these young people a chance to realise their dreams of working and contributing to society and their local community.
Should you require any further information or would like to meet to discuss the project further please do not hesitate to contact me.
